Dorothy "Dot" Nolen Wagnon, 77, passed away at her residence on Saturday, October 1, 2022. She was born in Aberdeen on May 21, 1945 to the late Frank and Laura Baker Nolen. Dot was a graduate of Aberdeen High School and married Arthur Wagnon in 1975. She was a devoted wife and mother and took great pride in being a homemaker. Dot was very devoted to her community where she volunteered with the Girl Scouts and she was also very involved with the VFW. One of her favorite things was helping prepare food for our veterans. Always looking to meet someones need, Dot helped others by making burial gowns for babies in what would become Angel Gowns of Mississippi. Being an expert seamstress, she also sewed many aprons for cancer and dialysis patients. Dot was extremely selfless, kind hearted and always looking for some way to help. This was possible for her great love she had for God and her willingness to let His light shine through her. She was a faithful member of Aberdeen First Presbyterian Church. Easing the burden for others and bringing joy into the world was her greatest joy in life. She loved her family, especially her grands and great grands, her church and her community.
